Little sparrow in my heart:
seems as if we soon will part.
Stay inside for some time more
though your flutters make me sore.
Little sparrow: chant your tune.
Seems as if you’re leaving soon.
Break my heart just one more day
for the girl that’s gone away.
Little sparrow: when you leave,
taking with you all I grieve,
take the ache within my chest.
Wait before you take the rest.
Leave me with the thought of her
long enough to feel it stir.
Little sparrow: then you may
take it all and fly away.
